(source: Gordon-Connell Thee. Seminary here) In Acts 23:1-3 Paul was on trial before Manias in 57 AD when the Bible says, “At this the high priest Manias ordered those standing near Paul to strike him on the mouth.
Then Paul said to him, ‘God will strike you, you whitewashed wall! ‘ ” In agreement with the biblical account, Josephus records that between the years 47-59 AD the high priest was Manias son of Antibodies. “The wealth of the wise is their crown, but the folly of fools yields folly. ” – Proverbs 14:24 Be good today and say kind things to people. December 14 Evening “For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God… Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation” – First Peter 1:23 and 2:2 www.

HTML Saved By the Word; Mature By the Word After being saved (phase one) we must continue (phase two) in the same word that provided the knowledge and understanding that led us to salvation. At the same time, we must avoid the counterfeits and false teaching that can lead us away from the source of salvation. Losing salvation (phase one) is not possible, but failing to grow and produce the fruit of that salvation is a daily danger. Good deeds, godly character and the fruit of the Spirit are products of the seed of the Word of God, the same seed that produced the new birth.
For you have been born again (phase one), not of perishable seed, but of imperishable through the living and enduring word of God…. And this is the word that was preached to you…. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation (phase two). 4 – 1 Peter In this verse, Peter encourages the early Christians to realize their salvation is a result of the Word of God being planted in their lives.

The Greek word for “crave” is apotheoses (in the aorist imperfect active tense) and meaner “to long for, to desire, to crave”. This preposition in compound indicates intense desire directed toward an object (Linguistic Key, p. 570). The active tense meaner that the subject does, or causes, the craving. The word translated as “pure” in First Peter 1:23-2:2 is dolls which meaner “without deceit, unadulterated, uncontaminated”. This Greek word is used to describe the quality of grain, oil, wine. The term “may grow’ is the Greek aesthete. It is rendered in the aorist subjunctive passive tense, and meaner “to cause to grow.
These words could be translated “in order that you might be nourished up. ” The verse from 1 Peter ends by assuring the readers that this craving for the pure spiritual milk of the Word of God will result in believers making progress in their salvation. It is helpful to note that it is the healthy baby who hungers, and even cries, for milk. So it is with the Christian. A spiritually healthy Christian hungers for the hearing, teaching and instruction that come from the Word of God. Apostles (Gar) – Apostle (Eng) – apostles is Greek word meaning “a delegate,” “a messenger.
It was used to refer to someone sent with orders from a high authority. It is used 79 times in the Greek New Testament and is translated “apostle(s)” 76 times and “messenger(s)” 2 times, and “sent” once. Do I seek to think, speak and act in wisdom? Or, do I behave in whatever way I feel at the moment? I will seek to discern wise thoughts, words and deeds from foolish ones that produce mere folly.
